There's Something Fishy About This Film...
This 20s silent educational film looks at various kinds of water life in a river. Its pretty standard for the most part, but some of the photography is nice, and it has a charming 20s feel to it, including a Tom Sawyer-like kid going fishing.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.

The fish... are SILENT!
Pretty standard film. though made in 1928, about the life of a fish. What maks this film stand out was the usage of the microcinematography of the birth of a fish. Other then the novelty value of seeing a educational film made from such an earlier time, it's pretty standard.
